Skip to comments.Salon Publishes Call for Murder of Sarah Palin
Posted on 12/18/2010 7:45:58 AM PST by kristinn
Liberal online political magazine Salon.com published a letter to the editor yesterday that called for the murder of 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
The letter was written in response to a mocking article at Salon titled, Good Morning America's painfully friendly interview with Sarah Palin by Alex Pareene.
Pareene snarkily sums up the GMA interview, "The interview was basically split into a couple of distinct sections: How awesome is your family, how bad is Barack Obama, how awful are people who criticize you, and how awesome is America?"
The first letter published in response to the article calls for Palin to be electrocuted by a cattle prod by convicted dog abuser Michael Vick, "Vick gets a pet to torture and we get rid of Palin. A win-win for everyone!"
That letter has apparently sat in the pole position under the article in the Letters to the Editor section since it was posted "Friday, December 17, 2010 12:33 PM ET."
The Letters section for the GMA article lists 65 letters published over four pages. Each letter has a "flag" button to call attention to Salon editors about objectionable comments. It seems no one at Salon finds it objectionable for the site to publish an explicit call for murder.
Salon's Editor in Chief, Joan Walsh, is a regular on MSNBC and CNN. Will Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough or Wolf Blitzer attack Walsh for prominently publishing a call for the murder of Sarah Palin? Will Walsh do the right thing and publicly apologize to Palin and pull the letter?

" I Have An Idea"
" Let's let Michael Vick keep Sarah Palin as a pet instead of a dog. It will be safer for dogs and maybe we'll get the satisfaction of having Vick electrocute Palin! You know that after listening to that voice for longer than 30-seconds Vick would be lunging for the cattle prods.
"Vick gets a pet to torture and we get rid of Palin. A win-win for everyone!"
Owen Meany IV
Read Owen Meany IV's other letters.
I read “Owen Meany IV’s” other letters, at least as many as I had time to read.
I’m not a psychiatrist, but...I spend way to much time on the www. He’s typical of an attention-mongering breed that inhabits message boards. They must be emotionally unhinged and alone or in bad relationships because they come on the boards and attack other posters, use vulgar language as punctuation, and seem to have a *lot* of time on their hands (Unemployed? Posting from work?).
He’s a sick puppy in a sea of sick puppies (Salon) and that’s what discourse/exchange of ideas has come to in the world today.
And I don’t care if they pull the letter, in fact I’d rather they wouldn’t. I believe posters are a reflection of the website, and Salon should be proud of what they attract.
Is Salon still in business?. I thought they went belly up several years ago.
Yeah, but who wants to do all the heavy work of dragging libs from under their beds? You could throw a disk!
Didn’t some guy just get sentenced to three years in prison for writing a poem about killing a potential presidential candidate?
That's why Zippos were invented.
>I have an idea: anyone that hurts Ms. Palin dies, sound good?
Even better...said person is kept healthy and alive for as long as possible and 16 hours per day
they are subjected to the most painfully possible stimulus and the other eight hours they
can sleep to remain healthy.
These people are evil.
Sometimes I wonder just how many liberals are sociopaths.
Is that a 16” barrel, if it is I have to have my eyes checked.
Warped opposition. They are FILLED with hatred, vile, evil and ugliness all through thier bodies. Proof positive something is definitely wrong with them.
“liberals” don’t deserve to be called liberal. They are self-loathing pessimists with no ethical or moral principles. They are nothing, believe in nothing, and are worth nothing.
When will the SS and FBI shut Salon down
until the authors and enablers
of this atrocity are identified?
Think General Sherman in Georgia...
I think the pic just cuts off there.
Another sad and pathetic asshole living in mommy’s basement lashes out at Srah Palin.
Can’t say that I am shocked. The left is basically a gathering ground for sick and diseased minds............
While in Alaska I'd guess Sarah and Todd Palin provide their won security.
Elsewhere, I'd bet they hire the best of private agencies and follow the strictest protocols.
That said, eventually some deranged commie will try.

Looks like a military M4 (14.5”) that the picture cropped off a few more inches from. The short hand guards (what is installed on the weapon she’s holding) need at least a
10 1/4” barrel to have a flash hider installed immediately past the front sight.
“Come with me if you want to live.”
